4 Tips for Visiting the Walls of Dubrovnik

The walls of Dubrovnik are the most popular tourist destination in the city, so they can be extremely busy! They’re especially popular with visitors from cruise ships which call into the port, and which tend to arrive at the walls around 9 am. Begin your visit between 8 am and 9 am in order to beat the crowds!

Pile Gate is the most popular entrance, and therefore also the busiest area of the wall. For slightly fewer crowds, consider starting at Ploce Gate or St. John’s Fortress.
Make sure to dress appropriately for the weather, as the walls aren’t covered and there’s no shade. In summer, make sure to wear a hat and bring sunglasses and sunscreen. You’ll also need shoes suitable for walking and climbing plenty of stairs.
There are places along the wall where you can stop for refreshments, including ice cream, but consider bringing plenty of water in summer to avoid dehydration and heat stroke. There are limited bathroom facilities, so bear that in mind before starting your visit.

Frequently Asked Questions

Hey, wasn’t Game of Thrones filmed at the walls of Dubrovnik?

Yes, the walls of Dubrovnik were used as filming locations for Game of Thrones! They played the role of King’s Landing and featured in several seasons of the hit TV show. The Game of Thrones phenomenon is one of the reasons that Dubrovnik is more popular with tourists than ever, and there are official tours which will take you to all of the most important filming locations, from the Pile Gate to Lovrijenac Fort (which featured as the Red Keep). Other tours also take you around Dubrovnik and over to Lokrum Island to see sites which were used as the location for Qarth. Read more.

What else is interesting about the walls of Dubrovnik?

The first city walls in Dubrovnik were probably built in the 7th Century, but the walls you see today were defined in the 14th and 15th centuries, with building work to extend and reinforce them continuing until the 17th century. They vary in thickness, depending on the placement of the section of wall, and can be anywhere from 4 feet to 16 feet (1.5 to 5 meters) thick in places. They’re considered to be one of the most impressive examples of medieval fortifications, and they haven’t been breached since their construction - not by the Venetians, not by Napoleon’s army, and not even by the Yugoslave People’s Army in the 1990s, despite their modern technology. In addition to their impressive military history, the walls are stunningly beautiful, offering visitors a chance to see the Old Town and Mediterranean Sea from above. Read more.

How long does a visit to the walls take?

A trip to the walls of Dubrovnik takes about 2 to 3 hours depending on your fitness level, whether you want to see the whole length of the walls, and whether you’re taking a guided tour. You can probably make it around the walls in slightly under 2 hours if you’re keen to, but it will also depend on the number of other visitors, as it can get reasonably crowded. Read more.

Are the walls accessible?

The city walls are not accessible to wheelchair users, or to other visitors with limited mobility. There is no elevator, and in addition to the steep stairs at the beginning or end of the walls there are multiple smaller sets of stairs along the way. There are places to rest along the walls, but individuals who might take longer to climb the walls, or who anticipate needing a lot of breaks, should think twice before booking a guided tour where the pace will be relatively swift. Strollers are permitted but not advised, and those visiting with very young children should bring a baby carrier if possible. Read more.
